Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 105

This time, our challenge is set by my team mate Viv, and she wants 'clean and simple'.

Our sponsors are:


See the challenge blog for prize details.

Now, I think my style tends towards 'clean and simple', but as with anything, there are degrees. I love my layers, patterned papers (although I don't like combining them) and I prefer a little embellishment especially when I use a simple image. But, for this challenge, one of Viv's requirements is 'white space', so I put on my thinking cap and came out of my comfort zone.



I paper pricked a dog rose image by Janet Wilson before die cutting and mounting it onto blue mirricard. I've stuck with a big expanse of white in the background, but felt it needed something to stop it 'bleeding off the edge of the card', so I matted with more mirror card leaving a very narrow border, and finished with some velour ribbon and a spot of glitter glue.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
